Meet the Author

Julie’s first love is the exquisite and enduring city of Philadelphia, where she has lived for most of her life. Her second love is the green Schwinn tandem that barely fits in her apartment, and the art of convincing friends to hop aboard and roll through the city streets. If she’s not cycling, she’s lying in the grass by the Schuylkill or cooking with friends.

Julie writes for phrugalphilly.com and GRID magazine. She recently returned to school and is working towards a Masters of Engineering in Integrated Product Design at the University of Pennsylvania.

Her favorite quotation: “When I see an adult on a bicycle, I do not despair for the future of the human race.” H.G. Wells
